I don't exactly remember how to spell it but how do you put the 2 dots over letters in you name?

To put the dots above letters name you must find out the alt key code (unless it's a button on you key board) the one for ë is ALT-0235 so you hold down alt then press 0235 and you will get ë

And ä is alt-0228
And ü is alt-0252
And ö is alt-0246
And ï is alt-0239
And Just because
ë is alt-0235
THis should help

So now Arfëa, please give us the ones for the ones with ' and ^ over them like á and û, because I get tired of copying and pasting them from the Character Map (RUN "charmap").

Of course these short cuts don't work for me when I'm typing into this window using Mozilla Firebird as my browser. Do they work in Internet Explorer or only if you type everything through Word?

Alt-0225 = á
Alt-0233 = é
Alt-0237 = í
Alt-0250 = ú
Alt-0243 = ó
AND
Alt-0226 = â
Alt-0234 = ê
Alt-0238 = î
Alt-0251 = û
Alt-0244 = ô
These are them and they do work with Explorer i don't know about anything else.

Just use a French AZERTY keyboard (or change your keyboard settings to French) and putting the ^, ¨, ù, é, è, ´, `, whatever, becomes a piece of cake, or like the French say : une pièce de gateau.

And who, may I ask, is this git 'el Supremo?'
And seriously... does the French keyboard have the accented letters on it? What's the Frendh keyboard like?
And does anyone know how the japanese type? They've got a hundred million alphabets and a hundred million characters in each!!!

El Supremo would be 'The Shrub'

Oh, really? That's good to know. As is this handy list of characters I find without even the wit to use charmap, but by going "Alt 144... no, that's not it; Alt 145... no, that's the uppercase... Alt146...." Being elliterate is a pain, especially since BOTH my parents were computer science majors in the mid-eighties. Ah, those were the days, when we got our very first computer, and, because we paid extra, had DOUBLE the standard memory: a whopping 512K! Only ran about $2200, too (and that's 1985 dollars!) I'm not saying that was a while back, but our OS was DOS 2.10. I miss DOS. Returning to topic, (sort of) I can think of a few eupemisms that would be both unmistakable and, I'm sure, instantly deleted. ;-p
